In the former case, it may be a temptation to sin; in the latter, it must be ruinous.

Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over impure spirits.
These were his instructions: "Take nothing for the journey except a staff--no bread, no bag, no money in your belts.
He told them: "Take nothing for the journey--no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt.
Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
